Abstract (300 words maximum)

Previous studies have explored the usefulness of various displays of automated vehicles (AVs). However, very few studies have explored the effect of planned trajectory on takeover performance. Previous research has also indicated that music can affect one’s ability to drive but has not shown the effect that music may have on takeover performance with a planned trajectory line. Therefore, this study aims to determine whether a planned trajectory line, displayed on the windshield, can improve the takeover performance of drivers while being distracted by music. We hypothesized that music would increase reaction time despite the aid of planned trajectory. To test this, we have conducted an experiment using a driving simulator and virtual reality headset. Participants had a series of eight trials to test whether a planned trajectory line would improve the takeover performance regardless of the effects of music. We are currently analyzing the data and these results will allow the researchers to illustrate the effectiveness of a planned trajectory line on takeover performance when music is a distraction inside an AV.

Planned Trajectory Using Augmented Reality on an Automated Vehicle with the Presence of Music

Previous studies have explored the usefulness of various displays of automated vehicles (AVs). However, very few studies have explored the effect of planned trajectory on takeover performance. Previous research has also indicated that music can affect one’s ability to drive but has not shown the effect that music may have on takeover performance with a planned trajectory line. Therefore, this study aims to determine whether a planned trajectory line, displayed on the windshield, can improve the takeover performance of drivers while being distracted by music. We hypothesized that music would increase reaction time despite the aid of planned trajectory. To test this, we have conducted an experiment using a driving simulator and virtual reality headset.
